Scenic River View of the Mississippi River

Sunset at the Mississippi River


Only three minutes off Interstate-55, the Mississippi River Walk and Observation Deck offer panoramic views of the greatest waterway in North America. Enjoy a leisurely 1/5 mile walk from the Riverside Park to the Observation Deck. 

Take advantage of several observation benches along the way, set a spell and let your mind move with the river.

See eight miles of the river as it winds around the New Madrid Bend, a point of strategic significance during the Civil War.


The River Walk is handicapped accessible and is open daily at all hours.
